Interactive session with Tilak Devasher

The Department of Political Science organized an interactive session with Mr. Tilak Devasher retired Special Secretary, Cabinet Secretariat, Government of India and the author of the book ‘Pakistan: Courting the Abyss’ on 11 February 2017. In his discourse, Mr. Devasher gave a clear and objective description of the deeper problems that affect Pakistan as a nation and its impact on the larger India – Pakistan relations. He examined the looming water crisis, the perilous state of education, the economic meltdown and the dangers of an unrealized ‘demographic dividend’ that have been eating into the roots of Pakistan since its inception. He also discussed the Pakistan Movement, where the seeds of many current problems were sown. At the end of his discourse, Mr. Devesher answered the queries of the students. It was a very informative and enriching session for the students as well as the faculty.
